Welcome to 5th Grade/ ELA and Social Studies


    Greetings parents and students!Google Classroom Code is : 2m3pxgb If you don't know how to use google classroom please look at the slide show on this page to the right. I also sent you an email with instruction to your student account. The easiest way to access your google classrom is to log in to your student desktop account. Once there, click on google apps, then google classroom. Click on my name and you will see the posted assignments. Some of the assignments will count for a grade. This week the short answer question counts as a grade. Make sure you answer the question and send your reponse to me via google classroom. 

     Google classroom is where I will post my assignments each week. Each week there will be 3 ELA assignments and 1 Social Studies assignment. Two of the ELA assignments will be assigned on I-Ready. One ELA assignment will be answering a question or a writing response on Google Classroom. The SS assignment will be on SS Weekly. Go to your student portal and sign in to your Marion County dashboard. Look at your tiles on the screen. I-Ready, SS Weekly, Google Apps are all located as tiles on your screen. You don't have to go to a separate website, it is all centrally located. If you look at the bottom of your dashboard, you will see different categories. SS Weekly is located under E Textbooks. Google classroom is located on Google apps. The county uses Outlook for email and that is located in Office 365. If you are having trouble finding your email look at the screen where you sign in to your marion county desktop and click on the office 365 link under where you put your password. I won't be emailing you...I am going to use Google Classroom to communciate with you. However, if you want to send me a private message you can email me. You dont' have to worry about missing any assignments, they will only be posted on google classroom. This is so that you don't have to go to several places for my information and assignments. So please refer to google classroom. Yes, the assignments on google classroom will count as a grade. I will average your two I-Ready lessons for one grade and one grade for Social Studies Weekly. 

    I have made a change to our Zoom meeting times. We will have one Zoom meeting a week. Every Monday at 2:00. It will be the same code and password you have been using for our 2:00 meetings. Mrs. Stickley will join us for our zoom meetings each week so you don't have to worry about separate zoom meeting times. 

    I am still available for questions. My office hours are:

    Morning Office Hours: 9:30-10:30

    Afternoon Hours: 1:00-2:00

    If you need face to face help with issues just send me an email or parents can dojo and we will schedule a time to meet on Zoom. Or you can just post a message on Google classroom or email me. 

    Attendance will be taken by looking at I-Ready each morning for my homeroom. Please log on each morning before 9:45 so I can submit my attendance at 10:00. If you are sick please contact me by google classroom or email so I can mark you absent. 

    If you are a gifted student. Please go to Mrs. Villella's website to see her instruction. Also, don't forget to check the websites for Mrs. Baines (art) Mr. Gulick (music) and Mr. Varnadore (P.E.)

    Take care, Kelly Wilson

  • Please ask your child to log on google classroom from their google apps on their student desktop to see each week's assignments. Go to www.desktop.marion.k12.fl.us

    Then, your child will sign in to their desktop with their username and password that they have used all year to get into I-Ready. This will take them to all of their apps. Google classroom is located in google apps( look at bottom of screen) I-Ready should already be on the screen. SS weekly is located in E Textbooks. We use outlook email which is in the app for Office 365.
